    Specialty with vacation time

    I don't know of any employer that will give you months off at a time unless it's medical leave. A vacation like that is something you need to do before finding employment. What you can do is talk to the hospitals you were thinking about applying at and asking what their vacation policies are.

    Help!! Having a hard time with wording this dx!

    Is the dx of anorexia supposed to mean anorexia nervosa the eating disorder, or anorexia being the loss of desire to eat (such as in some cancer pts)?

    appropriate interview attire

    I've always stuck with nice pants (something tan, brown, or blue....Never jeans), a button-down shirt (tucked in) and casual or semi-dress leather shoes. If I want to add extra, I'd wear a tie.

    Hospital Technology Question

    I have to log in to access anything. But the idea of just swiping in sounds like it would be a time saver.

    Should I quit?

    Good luck with school. Post again if you need any help.

    Should I quit?

    Take notes in lecture, take notes when studying. This always worked for me when I was trying to memorize. It might work for you. Also, try getting a study group together and study chapters together or answer prectice question. You could also see of the instructor is willing to put together a study guide. Hope it gets better for you.

    Listen to them, do what you are supposed to do, act professional. Pretty much just act like you are starting a new job.

    i am not crazy

    Personally, I would have gone back to my unit after leaving the unit I floated to to see what the staffing needs were or if I needed to float to another unit. But when the supervisor tells you to leave, you assume they know what they are talking about. Because they told you to go, and you reported off, I don't see how you really can get in trouble for it.

    First identifier of hemmorhagic shock?

    I'd pick (A). Restlessness would be because of low O2 sats due to blood loss, Heart rate would increase as blood pressure decreases.
  16. Try searching on Google Scholar. It can help you find articles or journals. I used it a lot in school.
